This is all very subjective, and you should definitely try as much as you can get your hands on before buying something. But, if you want opinions: I really like Acoustic for amps, IMO you can't get much better for the money. I haven't tried a very wide variety of strings, but Ernie Ball Super Slinkys work for me. Ibanez is probably the best for overall value, very good basses for the money; Squier and Traben are also good for the price. I've owned an Epiphone Thunderbird for a little over a year, and while I don't hate the sound a lot of people do. I have had problems with the strap buttons stripping out and having to be epoxied back in, and of course neck dive and fret access are atrocious; I wouldn't recommend it.
